The title sums up my day! I tried to daytrade today's tape and got whipsawed by mother market. I anticipated to hold my VMW position as a swing, but as the market turned around I sold to lock in some profits. I then decided to short a few stocks only to have the market run up on me. Done for the day, maybe done for the week.
This is an ugly tape with both the bulls and the bears trying to take control, it may be wise just to sit on the sidelines. However it is worth noting we could be near a double bottom, and that could effectively send stocks higher. We will see!
Update: Bought LDK in after hours.
